Fire Emblem Echoes,problems loading character sprites

Issue: Fire Emblem Echoes doesn’t load the 2D sprites of most characters and enemies correctly. In most cases, parts of the face are missing. Sometimes the entire character sprite is missing. Also affects other Fire Emblem games like Awakening and Fates. Only a minor issue, but still pretty annoying after some time.

Here’s some issues I found with your log that might help.

  • The CPU Clock percentage is not 100%. You may experience unexpected game speed.

Since you’re using Custom Textures, you should disable your texture filter.

Furthermore, you should disable Dump Textures in Emulation>Configuration>Graphics>Advanced Tab → This option is only useful for those that are interested in creating their own custom textures.
You may also want to delete all the textures it’s dumped so far: Go to File>Open Citra Folder, then open up the dump folder and delete the textures folder found here (this will delete all dumped textures for all of your games).
